Slalom kiteboarding: tight challenges

The 2013 PKRA season is preparing to unveil the first ever Slalom World Championship, as a premier kiteboarding discipline.

There will be six events and over $60,000 in prize money, at stake. Slalom kiteboarding races promise to be one of the most entertaining divisions and will be run with an open gear format.

This means that racers are not bound by any gear restrictions and each racer is able to optimize his gear. It will be a test to the multiple kiteboarding industry manufacturers.

Slalom kiteboarding races will get all riders close together, with spectators always know who is winning and what it will take from the rest of the fleet to steal the lead. 

In 2013, the Slalom discipline will be represented in five continents and six countries. Mexico, Turkey, Germany, Morocco, China and Australia.

Provisional schedule of the 2013 PKRA Slalom World Tour:

Mexico | May 9-12
Turkey | June 19-23
Germany | July 12-21
Morocco | August 20-25
China | November 12-17
Australia | November 27 - December 1
